Eliminate Single-Use Plastics by 2022

In its continued commitment to ensure the environment remains vibrant for generations to come, The Travel Corporation’s (TTC) family of brands announced for World Environment Day 2018 that over the next five years   it will phase out all avoidable single-use plastics from its extensive selection of award-winning travel and tourism companies with its “Multi-Year Plastics Elimination Strategy”. The announcement comes as TTC, under the guidance of their not-for-profit TreadRight Foundation, officially instituted an immediate ban of more than 60 types of single-use plastic items such as straws, stir sticks, water bottles, plastic bags, and cutlery from its 40 global offices across its exceptional portfolio of brands.

 

 


Carbon Offsetting

As part of our continuing sustainability journey, we feel it’s increasingly important to provide our guests and our team with the necessary tools and information to allow them to make responsible travel choices whenever possible. With this in mind, we are now happy to provide guests with opportunities to carbon offset their travel experience. 

If guests are looking to offset their carbon footprint for an upcoming or previous travel experience, our not-for-profit TreadRight has identified two leading carbon offset programs - Conservation International Carbon Fund and myclimate  - that provide travelers with a number of ways in which to offset their travel experiences with a variety of carbon offset projects to choose from.
